The release from Cannonsville Reservoir was increased to 724 cfs as of 7 am this morning.  According to the recording this release will  last until further notice.  This release looks like it’s being used to cover the flow target at Montague NJ so keep an eye on the Stilesville gauge for changes.  If we get enough rain or if they are going to begin releasing from Lake Wallenpaupack on Tuesday they may drop our release over the weekend.  The flow at Hale Eddy will continue to climb this morning and level out just under 800 cfs.  Wading is still possible at this level- just choose your spots carefully.  last nights fishing was decent with lots of olives and fish were on them.  The wind stayed down all day which was a nice change from Thursday.
